The interchangeable-barrel single-shot T/C Encore is not a utility model, rather it’s an incredibly accurate long-range performer.
The Thompson/Center Arms Encore rifle is unique. It combines the oldest type of break-open single-shot action with the most modern sporting arms features – interchangeable barrels, weather resistant finishes, and a wide variety of cartridge chamberings, including the 7mm Rem Mag and .300 Win Mag.
Its widespread popularity is the result of one of the most impressive sagas in recent firearms history, and the original T/C Contender is almost solely responsible for turning handgunning into a rifle-equivalent longrange sport for competitors and hunters. But T/C never rested upon its laurels and since it was introduced in 1967, the T/C has constantly been upgraded and improved to widen its appeal and include rifle shooters.
